Products Used:
Flurry Vest, PCS Vest
Marker Setup: 05 Prostock w/ shocktech clamping feedneck, couple of Piranha's (SRT, PSP) and lots of cool toys to go with them
Strengths: Easy to use, seems well made, modular, comes in many varied camo patterns.
Weaknesses: Will not hold "a lot" of paint.
Review: I started out with a small fanny style pack with 4 pods and a bottle holder, then moved up to a Flurry vest, not bad but still not exactly what I wanted. Finally I purchased a RAP4 vest. I have been using it this summer. I have been very happy with the vest. I have also used my wife's PCS vest.

Strengths: Easy to wear, front zipper made it easy to get into and out of. The strings on the side allow you to adjust the fit to your preference. It also allows you to change the size if you need more layers of clothing as the weather turns colder. The pod holders on the front are much easier to use than ones in the back. You can crawl and hide on your belly without any issues. Just remember the pods are their and I would suggest diving onto them, The snaps and velcro make the modular parts stay well attached to the vest. The bottle holder ont he balk can be rotated to a sideways orientation if needed.

Weaknesses: Could use more paint hauling ability. It isn't a problem for me, but I can see where it might be a problem. The bottle holder is a little tight with my 68/4500 hpa tank. Also the radio pocket might be a little small for some of the larger radio's. It also tend to hold in a little more heat than no vest, but it is about the same as all the other vest that I have worn.
Conclusion: Overall I rate this vest pretty high. Easy to use, seems well made, easy to clean, nice modular setup. It isn't perfect but its pretty close.
